It is up to us ... to tell! (EASTER FRIDAY)

So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those
entrusted with the secret things of God.  Now it is required that those
who have been given a trust must prove faithful.  ...
You are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! - I Cor 4: 1,2,10
Still Life of Flowers and Grapes Encircling a Monstrance ~ Jan van Kessel (1670)

"Our people are becoming like Mary Magdela when she came to the tomb. 'They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don't know where they put Him' (Jn 20:2).  It is up to us... to tell our people where our Risen Savior is.

The Blessed Sacrament is Our Risen Savior with all the power of His love and mercy flowing out to those who come into His presence!  This is where we must run, like Peter and John.  This is where we must bring everyone. 

For each holy hour will advance the day when the light of His love and mercy will shine out, and then like Him, His people will be resurrected."
Excerpt from Letters to a Brother Priest
